Young people and Red Cross want to talk about bullying and respect for each other – and take in a good movie at the same time

By Staff

BURLINGTON, ON December 16, 2012  The event doesn’t take place until January but you need to reserve your space BEFORE Christmas – and the event has nothing to do with the Season.  But the event will be of great interest to many parents.

The opportunity comes from the Halton Red Cross’ Youth Action Council.   Peter Hodgson, Chair, Halton Area Branch Council, Canadian Red Cross  asks: “If you are a young person, are related to a young person, was once a young person, wish you are a young person or once saw a young person” , then this invitation is for you! Sign up now and join us on January 12th. And spread the word to your friends and family.

“Many of us have either been directly or indirectly affected by bullying:, said Hodgson. The Canadian Red Cross RespectED Program aims to prevent abuse, bullying, violence and sexual exploitation.

We are the Canadian Red Cross Halton Youth Action Council. We support RespectED and we would like to invite you to our event to raise funds for this program.  How can YOU help? Come to our Movie Matinee!

The movie: Ice Age: Continental Drift, which will be shown at the Silvercity Oakville Cinemas; 3531 Wyecroft Road, Oakville, Ontario –  Saturday January 12, 2012 –  9 am – 12 pm

If you’re interested please email to confirm attendance, or for more information

This is a Youth inspired and organized initiative. Please support us, as we support RespectED, which supports us all.

So here is what this is about.  The kids came up with the idea; they chose a movie that is popular, a little out of the ordinary, certainly not one of those action packed – how many people got killed? – films that are box office smashes.  Instead the kids picked an exceptionally well done animated film about something interesting, highly entertaining  and at the same times reflects on just where are we going with global warming and how did the continents get formed anyway?

If you’ve got a kid in the house that has gained the capacity to be thoughtful about others – let that young person meet with other young people who hold similar interests.
